One of the great strengths of "Constructive Thinking" is its review of what qualities of personality lead to successful living,...to successful workplace performance, love, adjustment, health, and good parenting...His review is greatly enriched by a generous selection of annecdotes and case histories...Epstein is balanced, thoughtful, and often wise...Epstein's book is far better than most popular alternatives. It is a thoughtful, accurate depiction of how personality can lead to success and the ways one can improve oneself. His approach is rigorous and scholarly, yet accessible, and provides important information to the public.(Contemporary Psychology (review journal of American Psychological Association), December, 1999) -- Contemporary Psychology (review journal of American Psychological Association), December, 1999

The previous paragraph indicates that Epstein's book ONLY covers the "constructive thinking" part of developing emotional intelligence, and if you want a book for that, I must say that he did a great job, building on the work of rational-emotive theraphy and cognitive psychology. He includes a very interesting questionnaire which helps you to figure out how constructive your current thinking is and gives you tools to avoid boby traps of automatic thinking and to recognize typical patterns of destructive thoughts. Unfortunately, this book is too limited to be "the" book to increase your EQ in all its aspects.
Reading this book (quite a few times) I learned a lot about myself. So far there are many books to achieve this, but only a very few being so clear in how to make the changes you want.
One of my favorite gifts for friends and colleagues needing support...
